What a great trip to Albania, Macedonia & Greece we had! What a beautiful country! Thank you hugely for putting together such a wonderfully balanced journey. Our patient guide and knowledgeable, Kela was excellent! I think she showed us all the best spots in the time we had, and with a bright smile, she could talk the stone-faced guards or policemen into getting her way. The food was excellent and she made sure I had a dairy-free meal. I felt very taken care of, safe and spoiled. A great trip all the way around! thank you! thank you very much, warm wishes
